We love what Yvon Chouinard – founder of Patagonia and 1% for the planet – said about being a 1% for the Planet member: “This is not philanthropy. This should be a cost of doing business. It’s paying rent for our use of the planet.”...

Testimonials

  • 100 % Agave - made from the roots of South Africa, inspired by Mexican Mezcal - this has to be my favourite drink. I used to opt for the Reposado, basing my knowledge (or lack thereof) of 'tequila' on what I thought I enjoyed, but gees the Blanco has stolen my heart...

  • We love the Honey Reposado with some kombucha and, obviously, some good old-fashioned Margaritas! My all-time favourite cocktail! The smokey flavour in Leonista makes this drink such a pleasure to pair with food as well. There are so many different flavour profiles to be enjoyed during all seasons of the year. Really so yummy!”

    Our lionesses are people we’re inspired by, because they embody Leonista’s values. Meet Amalia, accomplished South African actress and one of the most warm, vibrant people we know.

  • Leonista is such an amazing South African 100% Agave brand! So much fun and its the best working with them.

  • Before trying Leonista I'd always associated drinking Tequila with a hangover! It's now my drink of choice whether its a chilled night in or celebrating with friends. An absolute must to try especially as the next day won't be a total right off!
